Portland Trailblazers guard Damian Lilllard recently passed Jamal Crawford for eighth all-time on the three points made list.
“I always see stuff on social media where they talk about the greatest shooters of all-time and they always act like it’s just crazy for people to mention me. I think for how many threes I’ve made, for how consistent I make them, the level of difficulty that I shoot threes with over years and years and years, I just think it’s kind of crazy people don’t mention me in those discussions.” said Lillard.
Although Lillard believes he belongs in this discussion with some of the biggest ever shot, he knows that Steph Curry is alone at the top of this list.
“Obviously I think Steph is the greatest ever,” Lillard said. “But I think after him, I don’t see why I’m not clear-cut in that discussion, not just by makes, but how I shoot it, how I make tough ones all the time, how easy I shoot the ball. I’m looking forward to keep climbing that list so once I get up there in that top two, top three, I’m curious to see what people will say about me as a shooter at that point.”
Speaking of Crawford, after hearing the news that Dame passed him, he took to Twitter to say it was a hell of a run.
Hell of a run! Much respect Damian Lillard. Go past so many more. Respect!!
